I accidentally bit the dentist. 'Sworry,' I mumbled and 'Hazard of the job!" he replied brightly. The poor bastard.
When I got back out to the waiting room an elderly Greekish man patted the seat beside him encouragingly. 'Yes, sit! Sit!' he said. 'I have you here!'
I didn't want to be rude so I sat down next to him while I transferred money on my phone and he launched into a strange seduction. 'We have cappuccino now, ' he began forcefully.
I declined politely. 'Yes!' he insisted, a bit angry. 'It take ten minute! Just take ten minute!"
'I can't,' I said. 'I have to get to my kids...job...school...thing at the...office.'
'You have a hat,' he observed, changing tack and shifting closer. I agreed that I did. 'Your face is good on it.' I thanked him.
'I have a big one, ' he confided.
'Oh yes?" I said, an octave higher than my normal voice.
'A really big one. I have a very big one. For garden.'
I didn't manage to escape before he laid a sloppy kiss on my hand and said 'I see you tomorrow! For cappuccino!"
Bite a dentist, reject an old man, for one more day, my work in the community is done.
